Gyles Brandreth tried to recreate Tory MP’s ‘accidental porn search’ for Dominator tractor

Gyles Brandreth admitted he made a ‘risky’ move by trying to recreate Neil Parish’s accidental porn search.

The This Morning star decided to do his own ‘research’ after the Tory MP – who has since resigned after he admitting to watching porn in the House of Commons – claimed he was looking for a tractor when he stumbled on an X-rated site.

On Monday’s episode of the ITV daytime show, Gyles said: ‘In the interest of research, I did something quite risky this morning. I put the word “dominator” into my iPhone and no porn came up.

‘It came up with a music festival in the Netherlands, a DJ called Dominator, a Polish exhaust maker. The point I’m making is I think you’d have to go a little bit deeper to looking up the word “dominator” to end up on a porn site in the House of Commons.’

While there was laughter from Matthew Wright, Alison Hammond and stand-in host Craig Doyle during his story, Gyles then focused on a more ‘serious’ issue of behaviour in the House of Commons.

The former politician – who was himself a Tory MP from 1992 to 1997 – added: ‘My view is, to be serious, that when you’re in the chamber of the House of Commons, you are there to do a job of work.

‘If you’re not actually doing a job of work, you should be talking to your colleagues and people – it’s an opportunity to meet other Members of Parliament, and do the business.’

However, Gyles also claimed even in the days before smartphones, the idea of an MP looking at adult material in the workplace wasn’t unheard of.

He said: ‘In the 1990s, I kept a diary and I came into an MPs office, and found this MP looking at porn on his computer in his office in the 1990s.

‘That was published in my diary in the public domain, and nothing happened about it then. It is a scandal, and the culture does have to change. There’s no doubt about it.’

In a previous interview with BBC South West, Parish opened up on the controversy and claimed he was looking at farming equipment when he first stumbled on the site – an explanation which has been mocked by many celebrities.

He said: ‘The situation was that – funnily enough it was tractors I was looking at. I did get into another website that had a very similar name and I watched it for a bit which I shouldn’t have done. But my crime – biggest crime – is that on another occasion I went in a second time.’

He has since resigned, with a spokesperson for Tiverton and Honiton Conservatives saying: ‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank Neil Parish for his service to our communities over the past 12 years. We support his decision to step down as our Member of Parliament.’

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
